Denmark's Historic Resistance to
Nazism, Jews' Rescue in. Post Story

The current issue of the Sat-
urday Evening Post, in an art-
icle by Roul Tunley, "The Dan-
ish Jews—How Their Country-
men Saved Them from the Naz-
is," gives a full account of the
manner in which Denmark as-
sisted in saving more than 7,000
of its Jewish citizens from the
Nazi clutches and then, after
the war, welcomed them back
to full and honored citizenship.
This story relates how King
Christian X protested against
any attempts by the Nazis to
impose restrictions on Jews. He
warned that he and his family
would wear the Star of David
if Danish Jews were compelled
to pin them on their clothes.
This and many other inci-
dents are told in this account
of a brave people's defiance of
the Nazis, of the aid given to
Jews to escape in small boats
in an overnight flight to
The SatEvePost story t e 11 s
about the efforts of Dr. K. H.
Koster who helped organize
the flight and the great rescue
undertaking. Only 479 Danish
Jews fell victims to the Nazis.
The story indicates that there
were some Danes who collabo-
rated with the Nazis, but it em-
phasized that the people in Den-
mark overwhelmingly opposed

the invaders and came to the aid
of the Jews. It also reveals that
many Germans opposed the Ges-
tapo and shut their eyes when-
ever they saw Jews in flight. It
was a German who warned the
community of the impending
Nazi plan to round up all Jews
for deportation.
It is also revealed that there
were some Jews who were un-
cooperative and some who un-
justly complained about the
cost of their being taken by
boats to Sweden. In some in-
stances Jews who refused to
shave off their beards and in-
sisted on kosher food also
presented obstacles.
Eyewitness accounts of the
historic occurrences are told
in this story. The behavior of
the time is referred to as "an
ornament of history." Tunley
"Not all the benefits were on
the Jewish side. As Boerge Out-
ze, one of the country's leading
editors, told me, 'The Jews
helped to unify the country.
They also helped make the re-
sistance respectable. Up to that
time many people believed the
underground was criminal. But
after what happened to the
Jews, it was easier to collect
money for the resistance. A
month after the Jewish exodus,
sabotage of the German war
effort reached the highest peak
of the war."

The plight of the shiftless man
is worse than that of the shift-
less woman.
